i have an 8+1 and a mil-spec combat harness that i use
A-5 RT (not modded yet), Armotech Zeus w/ quick-cap, Spyder sumthin-or-the-other (lots of mods), and a $20 pump thing
works good, fits nice, does its job, the suspender attachment points are a good feature
well it sticks out some @ the sides, a vertical system might be better.
The price I paid cant be beat. $20 for the harness, and it came with (4) 100 rnd guppies. How can you beat that price. Anyways, it also fits 140 rnd guppies (which is what I use). I now use something else, so now my son uses this setup, and I added some load-bearing suspenders to the rig so he can carry more shtuff. It is good that this system has attachment points for a 4-point suspender system. (Some rigs only have attachment points for a 3-point suspender system, so if you are a suspender user, pay attention to this!) Also, the pod sleeves have stiffeners in them, so they hold their shape when you remove the pod, staying open for you so you can easily re-insert your pod while under fire. THIS IS A MOST NECESSARY FEATURE! ALL HARNESSES SHOULD HAVE THIS! Anyway, the only shortcoming is the fact that the pods stick out some at both sides of your waist. If you have a 36 inch waist this (might) not be a factor. But if you are average to slender (like me) than you might take hits in your pods with this rig. My son (12 ys old) has already taken hits on this harness, which sucks because his small size should be used for total advantage. I am looking into getting a vertical setup for him to replace this.
A vertical setup with comparable features is more expensive that the Ronin setup, so the Ronin makes a really good entry harness, and I think it will last a long time.
